March 3 2011 Update

As always, things here in Haiti are changing.  We have decided to postpone the installation of our solar panels until April to give more time for shipping.  We would hate for our team to arrive to install them only to find out that the panels had not arrived in time.  It's important that everything goes as smoothly as possible, and this will help us ensure that this happens!  Once again thanks for all the support to help make this dream become a reality!

Admits: 1

Kenlove recently went home to his aunt, however after about a week and a half she brought Kenlove back to our care.  He has done amazing readjusting to life here and is enjoying being in the Zandolit room now with the bigger kids!  Please pray that he continues to do well at COTP.

Discharges: 2

Asmessi was brought to COTP a few days after he was born, weighing only 3 pounds.  He spent a long time in the volunteer house so that we could ensure that he gained weight.  His father visited often and is very much in love with his son.  He was very excited when we informed him that his son was now big and healthy enough to return home.  Asmessi is in the formula program so that we can continue to monitor his weight gain.  We have already had the privilege of seeing him come back and he is doing great in his parents care!

Rosar was brought to us in November by her Uncle after her Mother passed away from Cholera.  While Rosar lived with us she celebrated her first birthday, began to walk, and gained a lot of weight.  Recently Rosar was able to return home to her biological family who missed her dearly!


We recently had the privilege of celebrating Anita's, one of our nannies form the Zandolit room's, 50th birthday!  Anita loved wearing the birthday crown and the children enjoyed signing to her and most importantly eating her cake!  Anita is a great employee and is amazing with the children!  We feel so blessed to be able to work with such an amazing lady!
